I first heard of Marie Kondo - also known as KonMari on NHK World a couple of years ago. The mantra she was peddling was something like (heavily paraphrased) “If it doesn’t spark joy in you, get rid of it”. Being a bit of a “hoarder” myself, I was rather intrigued by this proposition.Read More
I’ve been using Version 1 of the Peak Design Everyday Messenger (EDM) bag for over two years now. It’s always been one of my heavily used bags. Not just as a camera bag, but as an everyday work bag too.

It’s no secret that I came away extremely impressed with the camera on the iPhone X. The set of dual stabilised lenses and Apple’s willingness to partially post process images in-situ made it close the gap even further on point and shoot cameras.

I've gotten one from a store here in Hong Kong today and have played around with it a bit. I'll be taking it on a cruise this weekend so keep a lookout for a full review soon. Here are my first thoughts in the meantime.Read More
Could the Fujifilm X-T2 finally be the mirrorless camera that can replace a Canon or Nikon for bird photography in a more handhold-able package? To find out, I took the X-T2 to Hokkaido, Japan to shoot Red Crowned Cranes, Whooper Swans, and Eagles.Read More
